Mac Partition Resizer?


Is there any free (as in beer, not speech) partition resizer for Apple computers? I have a mac-mini and i'd like to continue to use Linux, but i have no easy way to backup data currently.

free trial or something.

I believe that some unix software could work, but I haven't had much experience with that- you also probably need a compiler- which is a pain for Mac.

congrats on a 444 post number btw.

I had actually already found that, the link to download it doesn't work. Plus I doubt the free trial lets you actually perform the resizing, usually you only need to do a resize once.

Lol thanks for the 444 posts congrats, didn't rezlize i was such a linux/unix addict!

I love cfdisk but I dunno- if you plugged an ubuntu liveCD (for mac) into the beast, would you be able to repartition? I know that it might be tough to resize with cfdisk. qtparted?

I don't think qtparted supports HFS+ (in resizing without data loss at least) does cfdisk? I'm comfortable at the command line I just need a tool that is known to work. What program does Ubuntu use?

sorry- linux hdd went clunka clunka so...

um... ubuntu should have some sort of partition thing- but I don't know. I haven't checked it out up close.

cfdisk- if you are comfortable with setting up again... (re delete, make smaller partition) it's a really dandy tool to use, but I don't believe it can resize- I could be wrong though.

remember- before any messing about, BACK UP IMPORTANT STUFF

good luck
